Narrow blade turf type fescue sod is our toughest and most popular product. With rich dark green color and the most heat resistant cool-season grass available. Fescue is practical for our climate and has the durability and rich coloration most homeowners are looking for. Contact us today to learn more about our fescue sod.


Kentucky Bluegrass is a classic breed of turfgrass commonly used by homeowners and builders across our region for decades. Bluegrass has fine narrow blades and a soft carpet-like feel however it is not as heat resistant as turf type fescue. Contact us today to learn more about Kentucky Bluegrass.
